Tehran: We took accurate satellite pictures of the American occupation in Syria
Tehran revealed today, Monday, that the military satellite, “Noor”, which was launched recently, sends daily accurate pictures of the movements of the American occupation forces in Syria, in addition to pictures from the occupied Palestinian territories and the United States of America.
The secretary of the Expediency Council, Mohsen Rezaei, said: The “Noor” military satellite sends daily accurate pictures of the United States of America and Israel when it passes over them.
He added: his country is monitoring the atmosphere of the Israeli occupation entity and America, “far beyond our monitoring of their movements in Syria and Iraq, while Iranian precision-guided missiles enter terror into the hearts of Americans.”
And American forces occupy Syrian territory in the north and northeast of the country, as well as the Al-Tanf region in the southeast of the country at the triangle of the Syrian-Iraqi border, under the pretext of fighting terrorism.
The American occupation forces are building illegal bases for them in the areas they occupy and seizing the wealth of the Syrian people, amid mounting popular rejection of their existence.
And the Iranian Revolutionary Guards announced last April the launch of the first “Noor” satellite for military purposes, and it settled in its orbit, 425 km from the surface of the earth.
Commenting on this, then US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that “Iran’s space program is dangerous and not peaceful.”
